Wolf Management Moves Forward

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission yesterday approved updates to its rules for wolf management. This aligns the Game and Fish Department’s rules with the law passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Matt Mead earlier this year.  During a news conference following the decision, Governor Mead told reporters the plan now goes out again for public comment and then review by the same five experts who first reviewed the plan – four of whom signed off on the plan.  Mead says he is hopeful that then the state can get Congressional approval for the plan by this fall. The maximum number of animals to be taken in a hunt would be 52, and 90% of the wolves are located within the trophy game area.  Governor Mead says the approach to managing the numbers of animals here is very conservative and scientifically sound and he urges the various environmental concerns with interest in wolf management proposals to give the plan a chance.
